Graceful lines: Recessed basins from Victoria + Albert

Victoria + Albert unveiled a new collection of recessed basins that allow designers to create custom vanities to coordinate with the rest of the bathroom. The sinks may be paired for a “his-and-hers” effect or used individually.

Headlining this newest collection are the Lario 100 Solo and Mandello 114 Solo basins. Both sinks were previously available only as part of Victoria + Albert’s vanity furniture collection. These were created by design studio Meneghello Paolelli Associati.

The Lario 100 Solo is influenced by Victorian design with a subtle rim detail. It is generously proportioned at 39-3/8” long by 18-7/8” wide by 5-¾” high. Rounding out the collection is the Mandello 114 Solo, which has a singular shape. Measuring slightly larger, the Mandello is sized at 45-1/8” long by 22-¾” wide by 7-¼” high.

Both the Lario and Mandello feature full width tap ledges. Both basins may be mounted on a countertop or semi-recessed, and deck-mounted with brassware for easy cleaning. Like all Victoria + Albert products, both basins are crafted from Englishcast, the composite of Volcanic Limestone and resin, with a high-gloss finish.
